I was hired to design and build the National Press Foundation a state-of-the-art Digital Asset Management system allowing the foundation to deliver streamlined interactive educational experiences to the national and international journalists who make up their target audience.
The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC hired me to build an interactive exhibition kiosk as part of their special exhibition “The American Evolution – A History Through Art“. Displayed prominently in the gallery, this interactive exhibition presented visitors with an educational and entertaining look into 100+ pages from the sketchbooks of German-American master Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902), from which came some of his most famous work.
I recently built a custom PHP- and mySQL-based WordPress automation system for batch image processing and deep-zoom image creation (DZI). Click here to see it in action.
AgIS Capital LLC is a Boston-based firm that makes opportunistic investments in farmland and private equity investments in farmland-rich enterprises.

LaBokay Natural Resources is a Louisiana investment company that owns mineral rights on 270,000 acres in some of the most productive areas in western Louisiana, exclusively focused on leasing oil and gas rights for exploration and development by others.

I was part of a small select team granted access to the archives of Gonzaga College High School in Washington DC, to organize and evaluate the school’s large and historic collections and artifacts. Dating to Gonzaga’s start in 1821, the archives include relics and remnants of Gonzaga, Notre Dame Academy, St. Aloysius Parish, the Swampoodle and Sursum Corda neighborhoods and old Washington DC before, during and after the Civil War.
Journalist Robert Hodierne covered the Vietnam war from the DMZ in the north to the Mekong Delta in the south, from the Central Highlands to the coastal plains, photographing soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen & civilians caught up in the war. I was hired to build a database-driven showcase of his work. Using mySQL and PHP, I delivered a dynamic photography site which allows visitors to view the combat imagery by keywords, text, dates, series and units.
There are many ways to say the same thing. I designed and coded these examples for my students to demonstrate the idea of “portability of content”, to get them thinking about the information hierarchy and simultaneous uses of data in layout design. For each design, there are the same 7 sections in the information hierarchy. The HTML in each of these designs is 100% the same – all that changes is the CSS.
This interactive map shows where people of specific surnames lived in Ireland in the 19th century, according to parish records. I scraped a static dataset from the Irish Times website, and built a much more interesting way to view the same information, with additional insights provided by clustering of semi-opaque colored markers. The dataset has 4 pieces of information: latitude, longitude, name of parish and number of family surnames in that parish.
